Half marathon training update:
I had to skip my 5 miles this morning per my training plan. Yesterday morning after my 3 mile run I noticed my right foot near my ankle was hurting. It hurt to walk normally so I limped around for most of the day. Today at the chiropractor (a new development, a post about this experience and my thoughts will be coming soon), I explained and showed the doctor where my pain was. Turns out the pain really wasn’t from my foot, but from a muscle in my calf, the cause just repeated use from running so much. We iced it for a bit and he put some constructive tape on my right foot to realign everything again. And he gave me instructions not to run, do the bike or elliptical today. If I had to work out I could do yoga, but really he preferred no exercise today. As much as it pains me to give up a training day, I am obliging with the hope that my foot (leg) will feel better tomorrow and I can carry on with my training.
Anyway, I found myself back in Annapolis, Maryland with Tommy and my mom on Sunday for a day trip to round out the weekend. We took in the sights driving around and of course had some amazing seafood!
The Point Crab House came HIGHLY recommended by a local after I told him our only criteria was 1) good seafood, not necessarily fine dining, the food just had to be delish and 2) the restaurant needed to be on the water.
Sunday was gorgeous and sunny, but very hot. So patrons could enjoy the beautiful (read: not rainy) weather, the restaurant had opened all of the glass exterior walls to the building so people could enjoy the breeze. Numerous ceiling fans were also on high throughout the restaurant so it wasn’t an uncomfortable temperature.
To start I ordered fried pickles for the table. They were sooooo good!
Mom and I decided to split four crabs and a tomato salad.
While Tommy took the safer route and ordered the crab cakes.
Everything was so yummy. Our server was really friendly and attentive.
Funny story: After Tommy watched mom and I hammer and pull a part our crabs to get the crabmeat out, he tried doing it as well. A local patron saw Tommy’s form and approach and came over to our table to “show him how it was done”. He was very friendly and Tommy appreciated the gesture. When in Annapolis you’ve gotta eat like the locals!
The three of us highly recommend going to The Point Crab House for a meal. You will not be disappointed!
